I hope they serve mamosas at that table, and there isn't a candy dish.

Guess I should have used the sarcasm or hyperbole font. I smoke cigars myself so really don't care if someone chooses to smoke or not. To restate my reply differently: the fact the path was lined on both sides for several feet with people smoking so that we had to kind of weave our way down the middle made it feel a bit of a gauntlet of smoke. Definitely not the same feel as other more open smoking areas. It was surprising and amusing as much as anything. Kind of a what the heck was that moment.
Don't worry, it's the times that we live in now. Apologize for everything, don't say anything, feel bad about saying a joke, and don't dare to have any sarcasm in your statements or you'll be broad stroke painted as whatever 'ism' or '-ist' that is that days buzzword to get article clicks. The age of social media has become both an enlightenment and a dark spot on our society as a whole. Everyone is special, no one is safe, everyone is safe, no one is scared to inflammatory remarks, everyone is afraid to say inflammatory remarks. We live in the age of total egotistical hypocrisy, surrounded by a virtual reality bubble of narcissism perpetuated by the advantage of digital anonymity.

So........don't shoot the messenger, I'm just trying to call on our trusted members who are "in the know" to see if there are any legs to this: A site called Orlando Weekly is reporting that there is a rumor that the Speedway in TL will be closed to make way for a new attraction as part of the Tomorrowland overhaul. Anyone else hear any rumblings of this?

Under the current plan, the speedway, in its current form will be gone. What remains of it, and what will be in its place, has yet to be finalized.

I wonder where they got the news from...

Unfortunately that is the same defense certain individual love to use because they didn't "get" their sexist or racist joke. It goes both ways.

For the (unofficial) record there seems to be four speedway options - none of which I emphasise so far as I know are a done deal.

Overhaul and overlay the existing attraction

Radically alter and overlay the concept but change it.

Radically alter and overlay the concept but change it as part of a bigger project

Fully remove the existing attraction for something new

Should any of these happen the attraction and the area around it will receive a very welcome update.

And of course this is (mostly) unconnected to the SGE project.

So, which one is the cheapest? :p

Or, the better question, which option would be most in tune with the greater plans for Tomorrowland in its (purported) forthcoming revisal?
 
I think any would be a good fit and an improvement.
So as long as they aren't suddenly tempted to do nothing, the guests win? How pleasant! Count me among those who feel the Speedway's replacement is long overdue -- I'd really love to see them go full tilt on something new for the area, but what you're saying is comforting. It sounds like they don't want to misuse this plot.
